Gemli.Data Runs On Mono (So Far)

by Jon Davis 20. September 2009 00:44

I was sitting at my Mac Mini to remote into my Windows 7 machine and I had this MonoDevelop 2.0 icon sitting there (I had installed it a couple days ago just to see it install and run) and I thought I should give Gemli.Data a quick, simple test run.

Notice the “Application output” window. It werkie!!

I was concerned that Mono hadn’t been flushed out well enough yet to be stable with Gemli.Data, I do a lot of reflection-heavy stuff with it to get it to infer things, not to mention System.Data dependency stuff. But it seems to work fine.

This isn’t by any means a real test, more of a quick and dirty mini smoke test. I was very happy to see that it works fine, and my confidence in Mono just went up a notch.

Not shown in the screen shot, I expanded it a little tiny bit to have multiple records, then I added sorting in the query. Apparently Gemli doesn't have sort support in the MemoryDataProvider yet so I used LINQ-to-Objects. Yes, LINQ syntax worked in Mono, too! Nifty!
